F1 How it Was DVD & 1 Life on the Limit DVD - Description

F1 'How it Was' takes you to the centre of iconic moments, with insight from the men who made them happen. What was their motivation? How did they make the difference? How did they cope with the pressure? Where did they make the difference? Candid interview exclusively reveal the untold stories, as the drivers take you inside the heart stopping minutes which defined their careers.

Relive a truly remarkable selection of races. Witness Niki Lauda's struggle to clinch the tightest championship in history, hear how a 'lucky' puncture helped Alain Prost deny the Williams pair in Adelaide in '86 and find out how mind games threatened to derail Nigel Mansell's famous win on home soil in 1987.

Return to Phoenix in 1990 and the thrill of Jean Alessi's improbable battle with Ayrton Senna before experiencing the raw emotion of Gerhard Berger breaking a long Ferrari winless streak in 1994.

'How it Was' mixes unforgettable Championship deciders with personal moments of redemption, including: Jacque Villeneuve's emotionally fraught duel with Michael Schumacher at Jerez in 1997, which ended in such controversy. Johnny Herbert's remarkable, attritional battle to triumph at the Nurburgring in 1999 and David Coulthard defeating all time great, Michael Schumacher, to clinch a famous win back in 2000.

There's also a spotlight on modern greats, including a tempestuous Fernando Alonso aggressively wheel banging against Massa at the European Grand Prix in 2007 and Jenson Button's phenomenal journey from last to first in Formula One's longest ever race. 

In superb detail with never before seen footage, indulge in ten unforgettable races you will want to revisit again and again.



1: Life on the Limit examines the difficult and controversial history of safety in Formula One.

From its earliest days F1 attracted the best and brightest drivers and saw them pitted against each other in cars that were at, or beyond, the cutting edge of technology.

Especially in the days before purpose built circuits predominated the result was tragically inevitable - many drivers paid the ultimate price for the speed, fame and glamour that went hand in hand with racing. 

As speed and the pressure to succeed increased drivers started to push back against the perceived lack of interest in their safety from teams and organisers.

With people like Jochen Rindt and Jackie Stewart leading the charge F1 as we know it today started to emerge. But it was not without severe birth pains that the safety regime that has protected drivers since the fatal crashes of Ratzenberger and Senna at the San Marino Grand Prix in 1994.

Packed with interviews with key players including Max Moseley, Bernie Ecclestone, Jackie Stewart, Damon Hill, Jacky Ickx, Nigel Mansell, Michael Schumacher and the indomitable Professor Sid Watkins, this documentary shows the true cost of the glamourous side of F1 and the price too many drivers paid for it.
